Very good! I used at least 3 cups of diced chicken. I think only 2 cups wouldn't be enough chicken in relation to the amounts of other ingredients. I used a combination of pineapples and grapes as suggested; that's a great combination. I added some chopped onion for some extra flavor. I liked the creaminess that the sour cream gave. The curry and the toasted almonds added a special something too. Thanx for posting this. I'll make this again (with my little changes/additions).

This is a really good chicken salad! I made as written and then put it in the fridge to meld and decided it needed more chicken, it was a little to creamy. I also added a little minced shallot and didn't toast the almonds. Served this on rolls rather than on lettuce. Made for ZWT-7~THE HOT PINK LADIES.

Whipped this up for a quick and easy lunch. The flavors of the fruit complimented the chicken nicely. I was debating adding onion (as I now see Parsley did) but decided not to and it was still very good. I just used slivered almonds, untoasted. Will make again for sure. Made for ZWT7, Count Dracula and his Hot Bites

A wordeful summer salad! I loved it, the celery was great with curry flavour and so light. I used low fat greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I only used pineapple cause I didn't have grapes but next time I'll use a combination of both. Its a total keeper! Made it for ZWT 3, as a big thanks to our captain Dreamgoddess for all the hard work during this tour!!!

Truly a Caribbean treat, as well as wonderful for even "pretending" you are on vacation, even if it is just sitting in your office. Packs well, tastes delicious, and is so versitile served on top of a salad, with crackers, (this is how we had it) or on a sandwich with some Artisan bread. The taste of the chicken, celery for crunch, the carrots, and pineapple coupled with the almonds really make this a special chicken salad. It took no time to put together, and just let it sit in the fridge for about 2 hours. Perfect! Thanks, Dreamgoddess! Made for *ZWT3 07*

Delicious! Creamy, fruity and crunchy. I used a combination of pineapple and grapes as suggested. Carrots in chicken salad are new for me, but I thought they added a nice color and texture. A lovely light dinner or lunch. Thanks, Dreamgoddess, for posting!

This is really nice. I did use extra curry powder and opted for grapes rather than pineapple. Also took PaulaG's lead and used yoghurt rather than sour cream. Added a few pinenuts as I had them on hand. Thanks for posting. I will use this often.

Very tasty, and different from the usual chicken salad. I chilled 24 hours before eating, and everything was still nice and crunchy. Thanks for posting!

A perfect dinner for a hot summer evening. The only change I made was to use yogurt instead of the sour cream. It was well chilled and served on top of torn romaine. The almonds added a nice crunch. I might try adding a touch more curry powder next time.
